Romeo & Juliet

directed by Ellen Stewart

Noshir Dalal (Romeo) & Malaika Queano (Juliet) 

The story is, of course, about a pair of star-crossed lovers. Two teenagers pursue their love for each other despite the fact that their families have been at odds with each other for decades. The story combines sword fighting, disguise, misunderstanding, tragedy, humor all in the name of true love. This operatic piece will be in period inspired costumes and will include a circus road show. Ellen Stewart’s treatment includes new characters who are named “The Particulars”. Stewart weaves Shakespeare’s verse with her own and the entire piece is sung. The opera was originally performed in 1991 in workshop form at Sarah Lawrence College, in Bronxville, NY. Other workshops have been performed in Montevideo, Uruguay, and Spoleto, Italy.
